Amazon advertising a release of the boxed set, calling it a "one time only limited edition run". Started at $99.99, dropped to $89.99, and today it's $79.99 (free shipping).

Too funny that Rhino is still advertising the Terrapin 77 release at 10% off the full price for $17.98, while dumping it on the retailers for $14.99. Yes, you heard it correctly - selling the disc for $14.99 while telling the $17.99 customers that they're getting a deal.

" two schaffers are better then one "

oh no! How about none? I remember in high school rolling pennies to come up with the $4.00 for the 12 pack of schaffer. That was when it was all about quantity over quality.

Of course now I prefer both

OMG--Schaffers?! I recall arriving in TX and finding it was the midwest/eastern version of Hamms or Lucky Lager...I can remember getting Lucky for just over $2 for a 12 pack, which was actually a flat box, and the bottles had little joke/cartoons on the underside.

Anyway, back to my point--I am sure I only had to pay about $3 for my 12 Schaffers...not sure.

"OMG--Schaffers?!"

Apparently Mr Tell is now a 13 year-old girl who is texting us from the back row in Algebra class.

We had to poach our beer. It was about $5.00 for a 12'er at the local market which was 5 miles from my neighborhood......so we needed a willing adult w/ a car.......our $5.00 12'ers usually went for about $10.00 after the "convenience fee".

Nothing like being 13 or 14 years old, drunk and on the loose........."Car! Ditch!" "Aw man, that was Mr Mercado!" "Did he see you?""I don't think so man....""Let's go throw rocks at Colleen's window!"

Ha--in point of fact, I recall being able to actually purchase the Lucky, and I was and looked 17, but the 7-11 kid didn't seem to care at the time...everyone knew you could buy it there...I was legal for the Schaffers, but I just haven't thought about it for 25 yrs (probably a good thing, right?)...thus, my shock...although the 13 yr old girl ditching class sounds--er, no, nevermind.

Oh Man not Narragansett. Schaffers were much better and almost tolerable, ice cold, on a hot day, if you shotgunned them. Besides, in their 16 oz format they would crush up better and make a semi usable flange for the trailer spare tire that was too big and would rub the inner wheel well.

Yep, certainly do remember the Heffers, at least the first couple. By the end of the night though I would be lucky enough to make it home let alone remember to keep the bottle caps. Maybe I was just younger then but I seem to recall those beers just hammering you.

Pretty much says it right there in the wiki. I actually had no clue Heffers and Narri's were even associated to each other but will definatly give them a try again now that they are under new ownership, next time I'm in town, since half my family is originally from Cranston.

The Terrapin Limited originally sold for $40.00 at GDM only. There going to be a certain number of copies made and no more. Somebody at Rhino changed their minds.

The first Fillmore West 69' boxset was limited to 10K copies. We haven't seen a second edition; so prices stay high and some people continue obtaining bootleg copies. They have no choice really.

The Winterland 73' boxset is not a limited edition. Rhino continues to sell them...

and whilst i would not want anyone to miss out on the fillmore 69 which is astonishing surely pirating it is aginst the unwritten rules. We have all this good,good music as much as anyone can listen to for free, why rn the risk of fucking it up?

besides its still on sugamegs!

Wait a minute...you mean the Winterland run is now on sale for $20 less than I paid? I was told by a number of investment advisors that this was a no brainer investment plan...it would be going for $1000 within a yr...rats. I built my 401k on this logic.

What's the Fillmore Boxed Set going for? If you happen to know...

I don't know Cliff, algorithmic models say buy the Road Trips and short full show releases. Now we have a Road Trips with a full show? A conundrum indeed.
